    windows xp style task bar GONE!!!???

    Hi all,

    Anyone ever had there XP style task bar disappear?

    Under windows and buttons it only displays "classic style" as an option.

    I'm not sure what happened. Just went to the computer and the taskbar is the classic style from windows 2000.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Go to start...run, type services.msc and press enter. Ensure themes service is started....don't know if that will fix it...

    Also, there is an issue with StyleXP and XP SP2 and have released a specific build for it.

    It has happened once here. I pressed ctrl-alt-del, closed explorer.exe. Then went to file and clicked on 'new task (run...)' and typed in explorer.exe to get it running again. Behold, my taskbar reappeared
